Can UDP fragmentation be turned off (all packets <MTU bytes)?

We're operating over an unreliable network that drops packets.  Nearly all our data packets are fragmented, some with five or more fragments.  With fragmented UDP, this is troublesome because it causes loss the entire packet because of the drop of a single fragment, incurring a greater penalty than just the overhead of using small packets in the first place.  Is there a QOS setting to make all packets <1MTU bytes?


Thanks,

Chris
